I was in London last week for a couple of different events, one of them being to create my own Birchbox in Selfridges on Oxford Street. I met with Beth from Birchbox UK in the Beauty Hall of Selfridges where you'll find the Birchbox pop up shop. This year the pop up shop will be open until the 28th December, so you have plenty of time to go and create your own.
There are two box designs this year, the iridescent one which I chose and a powder blue design. Both boxes also come with a sticker sheet so you can personalise your box for yourself or a friend. So much thought has gone into the boxes this year and it really shows, plus who doesn't love a personalised product.
The Birchbox X Selfridges* boxes are priced at £15 and you're able to choose from an assortment of brands from now until the end of the month where the brands will then be changed for the final four weeks of the pop up shop. Some of the brands that are available at the moment are Nuxe, Lord & Berry, Elemis and Spectrum Collection among others. There's an impressive range to choose from and it was really difficult to not make more than one box.
The boxes work the same way as the subscription boxes, you can choose two makeup items then one item from each of the skincare, bodycare and haircare sections plus you get a full sized beauty bonus such as a Birchbox key ring or hair tie. The boxes also feature a discount code for 50% off your first Birchbox when you sign up to the subscription service which would make a fab Christmas gift.
If you're heading to London to get some Christmas shopping done then make sure you pay Selfridges a visit to make something a little special.
